Join us for a colorful Fall day in the Park at the 9th annual Kings County Fiber Festival!

Shop a wide range of products from our talented vendors, you’re guaranteed to find great gifts and inspiration for your next project. Our vendors include crocheters, dyers, felters, knitters, quilters, spinners, and weavers, as well as artists creating design works that incorporate fiber as an integral material.

See the current list of participating vendors here.

Our goal is to raise awareness of both historic and contemporary approaches to the fiber arts, we’re planning skill demonstrations and artist talks throughout the day that are fun for all ages. See the full lineup of planned events here.

During the festival, we will also host the “Make Warm Hats for the Homeless” hat drive. Bring your hat donation, each hat in an individual plastic bag, to the Festival tent under the “Make Warm Hats for the Homeless” banner. We will deliver the hats to group homes, shelters and soup kitchens within New York City. Last year we collected over 600 hats!

Please make sure to wear your mask and maintain a safe distance from other shoppers.

Weather permitting.
